DH's work had a fundraiser today - $10 for an all-you-can-eat sampling ticket to their annual dessert-making contest.  There were ~30 entries (and many of them were REALLY GOOD).

The part I can't stop laughing at was that the fundraiser was for diabetes research.

There's a thunderstorm approaching, one that meets the National Weather Service definition of "severe".  I brought my storm radio out to the living room so I could monitor the storm. 

It went off a few minutes ago and poor Sam cat flew out of the sleeping chair in the living room, probably to hide under a bed at the other end of the house. 



(For those outside the US:
The National Weather Service issues weather forecasts and storm alerts to the media and broadcasts them to the public on special, reserved radio frequencies.  A storm radio receives those frequencies.  When a severe storm is approaching the NWS will send out a signal to those radios to turn on and wake the whole household.  That's what scared Sam.)

My dad has one of those, and it went off on night when I sleeping there.  I do not blame the cat in the least.  Actually that is why I have never set mine up.  If there is ever a big storm expected in the area I will, but not to just have all the time.  Not only would it wake me up, I would likely have trouble getting to sleep in any inclement weather for fear that it WOULD go off.  (Yay anxiety...)

Alas, for this weekend, I have had this song stuck in my head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mScdJURKGWM&feature=kp

There once lived a man named Oedipus Rex.
You may have heard about his odd complex.
His name appears in Freud's index
'cause he loved his mother.

....

So be sweet and kind to mother,
Now and then have a chat.
Buy her candy or some flowers or a brand new hat.
But maybe you had better let it go at that!

Or you may find yourself with a quite complex complex

You may end up like Oedipus
(I'd rather marry a duck-billed platypus
Than end up like old Oedipus Rex)!

I am so happy to see Tom Lehrer fans here! I thought I was so weird for being one of the only ones to know of him...

A 5 year old's alternative lyrics to the Barney song.

"I love you, you love me
Barney you are history
When I take your head and shut it in a door
You sad purple dinosaur!"
 
Time flies like an arrow.
Fruit flies like a banana.

My kittens are like a pack of tiny velociraptors, hunting my bigger cats in a pack.  I feel bad for my adult cats, but on the other hand, kittens!

Mocha is the same way with the older two. I have to distract her when she starts in on the oldest one.

My dogs have stretched themselves out so the greatest possible surface are of their bodies is touching the cool floors.  I know I shouldn't laugh, because we're in a serious heatwave, and even doing everything possible to keep the house cool (windows shut, curtains drawn, no lights on, everything but the fridge unplugged, computers running off battery), it's still warm.  You can only keep a house so cool in near 100F temps with no a/c.

But to see the mastiff stretched out like that is just funny, and then add the little dog trying to stretch herself to match made me lose it.  Maybe the heat is messing with my brain.

And for anybody worried, I'm monitoring the dogs.  If I feel they're getting overheated, I'll put them in the car and head to an air-conditioned pet store, like we did yesterday.
Some people lift weights.  I lift measures.  It's a far more esoteric workout. - (Quoted from a personal friend)

Today DS (almost 5) was chasing a butterfly. His 7-year-old sister soon joined him, it was an idyllic scene. Together they chased it into a flowering bush.

Two seconds later DD gave a little shriek and they both ran. There was a bee!

Yup, I laughed.
Bad spellers of the world, UNTIE!

"Mommy mommy mommy - what does the farthead say?  Farty fart fart!"

I *highly* recommend not laughing when your five-year-old tells you jokes she learns in school, because if you even snicker a tiny bit, you'll be hearing the exact same joke repeated every five minutes for the next week and a half  :-\

Tashigi and Niko-Chan,

Thank you for bringing up Tom Lehrer.  You are not the only ones who remember him fondly.  Who could ever forget 'Poisoning Pigeons in the Park'?

For E-Hellions who do not know his work, a quick Google search will call up an almost hour-long concert performance in Copenhagen. It's well worth a look. 

We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread.
